All Tied Up :Mixed Media Art Journal Layout


Life has been a bit full as of late. Between sewing, crafting, family, home remodeling projects and daily routines I am struggling to find time blogging. So if I seem a bit sparse as of late, you know why. I would love to make it around to your blogs but sometimes blogging is the thing that ends up on the back burner.



So, right now, I am just trying to keep up on my postings. My brain is full of a lot of extra things so if I don’t include extra thoughts, you know all my brain power has been spent elsewhere. Haha. I am sure a lot of you remember those days when your children were little. Some days can be mentally exhausting. Those are the evenings I like to spend in front of the TV or Computer doing something mindless.



Tonight is one of those mindless evenings. So, I will leave you to the pictures.

Creating The Journal Layout



This is the next layout in my paper doll journal. I created the background using the Pilgrimage to India and Art Deco Wallpaper Stencil with grunge paste and embossing powder. Not being happy with the way the background turned out, I added some tissue paper to the background before using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints and Infusions.



I stamped a steampunk stamp by Tim Holtz in the background. I layered PaperArtsy stamps as well as my my hand-carved mushroom and fish stamps. I also used some book paper, linen fabric scraps and some fiber. I finished off with some gesso splatters and doodling.
